Simone Leigh: Sovereignty, U.S. Pavilion

The artist Simone Leigh will represent the U.S. at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia with her exhibition "Sovereignty."

April 23, 2022 - November 27, 2022

Artist Simone Leigh’s representation of the U.S. Pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, “The Milk of Dreams,” opens this week to previews, before debuting to the public on April 23. Co-commissioned by Jill Medvedow, the Ellen Matilda Poss Director, and Eva Respini, the Barbara Lee Chief Curator at The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA), and curated by Respini, Leigh will present her inimitable, large-scale sculptures, the magnificence of which brings viewers face-to-face with the powerful Black female presence and experience.  

“Simone Leigh is one of the most gifted and respected artists working today. For the U.S. Pavilion, Leigh will create a series of new sculptures and installations that address what the artist calls an ‘incomplete archive’ of Black feminist thought, with works inspired by leading Black intellectuals. Her work insists on the centrality of Black female forms within the cultural sphere, and serves as a beacon in our moment,” said Respini.
